I'll admit it is a bit confusing to those expecting something linear or even semi-linear, but the circular structure is tied into the overall theme. All the threads return to a common point, all endings are beginnings, possibilities diverge and converge, cause and effect blur, everything that preceded is nullified and reset to zero...
Is there actually a difference between dreams, delusions, and reality?
It is Divergent Possibility Entertainment, an obscenely obtuse satire on CYOA in general.
The original introduction with all of its talk of choice and the illusion of control over your life or even your own thoughts was much more revealing. The first person I ever had test it actually reacted in the exact way I had hoped for:Complete confusion and helplessness over the ultimate fate of "her character". Eventually, she gave in and "just went with it" (her words).
In games, how much choice do you actually have? For that matter, how much do you have in this flesh-and-blood life?
Are you really in control of your choices? Which choices do you actually have a say in and to what degree?
Now re-read it with that in mind and try to go through every thread... Then let it sink in.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Extra Credit Challenge: In several "ending" passages, two or more threads combine in a way that shouldn't be possible unless their separate realities overlap. Can you identify them?
